2023-01-17 07:14 PST
Road safety is a top priority every year all over the Lower Mainland. In 2022, Burnaby RCMP, along with 11 partner agencies, conducted 43 planned commercial vehicle enforcement operations throughout the Lower Mainland.
These collaborative and proactive enforcement initiatives aim to make the region safer by focusing on safety issues related to commercial vehicles, including mechanical inspections and unsafe driving behaviours.
In 2022, the integrated team was able to accomplish the following across the Lower Mainland:
- Planned enforcement operations: 43
- Truck inspections: 1,706
- Trucks placed
Out of Service: 1,053 (62%)
- Number of violations: 4,552 (1,714 total Violation Tickets issued)
This has been the busiest year ever for this integrated team. Unfortunately, violations remain common -- which is why we continue to focus on enforcement and education, said Corporal Mike Kalanj with the Burnaby RCMP.
Each of these enforcement operations represents an incredible partnership between agencies dedicated to tackling commercial vehicle safety with a regional approach.
